Right now Rylie weighs 11lbs 4oz and is 23in long. Big girl, indeed! That's 75 percentile of babies her age. She's also in the 4mo old range of abilities of things she can do (hold her head up, put weight on her feet, etc). THEN, it was time for her 2 month old shots. I think this was harder on Mommy than Rylie. The nurse held Rylie's legs down while I held 1 of her hands and David held the other. Rylie did really well. She didn't start crying until the 2nd shot went in and then she just screamed like she has never done before. Poor baby was in pain! Mommy cried too because it broke my heart to see her like that. This was a really hard doctor appointment! After shots, she got pretty band-aids, then Mommy & Daddy dressed her and gave her a passy to help calm her. She stopped crying then. By the time we were back out in the car, she was already content and had no signs of tears. She had a bottle on the way home & then took a really good nap. Hopefully she won't get a fever like some babies do with these shots, but we've got medicine on standby just in case. Mommy's going to take Rylie shopping later and buy her something special for being such a good baby during all this today! Nothing to out-do Santa though who comes next week! She's VERY excited!!!

Rylie also came up there with David and everybody got to meet her. Nobody held her though because she was fussy and just wanted to sleep. I honestly think she's got bad allergies. I started feeling stuffy this week and now today I have a really sore throat, stuffy nose, burning eyes, and body aches. SO, this will be fun the next week getting over that with a 7 week old baby!
Anyways, everybody keeps asking me what I'm going to be doing now. I'm not going to work anywhere until flu season has passed, but after that I want to go back to the church nursery and work there again. I really missed that job & it'll be one I can take Rylie to with me. So that's the latest on us! We still have lots of Christmas shopping to do now!

I missed Rylie like CRAZY today! Luckily David could stay with her until 2pm because he doesn't have to be at work till then and Rylie's having someone watch her from 2-5pm before I come home. This is going to be the longest week of my life!
Friday David's bringing her to work in the afternoon when he comes up there so everybody can meet her. At least the sales department, where I work. The news department got to meet her last Friday evening when I brought her up there for our chief meteorologist's farewell. Everybody asked about her today though, so I think she's going to be a big hit on Friday!

Anyways, the 3 of us drove to Houston Saturday and just came back today. Rylie was an ANGEL the whole weekend. She slept the whole drive there and was so calm and content the whole weekend being in a different environment and meeting new people. She even did good during the nights. The one incident we had was at Dave's dad's house. I guess Rylie had too much built-up gas or something and while sitting in her carseat at the dinner table with us, she decided to throw up all she'd just eaten. Not spit up, but actually projected it. Poor thing.....but she felt better afterwards. The rest of the weekend was great. Everyone was happy to see her and then she slept most of the drive home, and only fussed just as we got back into Waco. I'm so glad this weekend went well for us! Our first long trip and overnight stay with her!

Time to get dressed!
Look at her gorgeous blue eyes!
Other than that, Rylie has started showing some baby acne/eczema on her poor little face :( I hope that goes away soon! I want to take so many pictures of her & it's already getting harder and harder because she doesn't seem to like having them taken! As soon as I get out the camera, she gets fussy. So hopefully this won't be too bad.
OH yeah, and apparently I've met my "limit" of pictures I can have on my online photo album, so I've made another one just for Rylie pictures, separate from mine. The added link is to the right!
That's it from us today! Thanks for reading!

Sunday afternoon we took our princess home. It hasn't been that bad really, but I've had some trouble with nursing. I don't know how much longer we'll be sticking to that. It's been really stressful! Other than that, Rylie is such a good baby! She sleeps so much & never really fusses. We absolutely LOVE having her & can't imagine how life was before she came! I'm really lucky I've had David here this week with us to help out. I don't know what I'd be doing without him! Especially with his crazy work schedule. It's going to be hard when he has to go back!
So that's the updates on us! Thanks so much to everyone who visited us in the hospital & sent comments on here! We're not having visitors at home quite yet, as we're still getting settled in, but we can't wait for Rylie to meet the rest of our friends & family! Here are some pics in the meantime....
She's sooo beautiful!

We just can't wait to meet our little precious baby! We've got the baby's room all ready to welcome him/her in and all the clothes are washed. We just need the baby!
We'll be posting any more updates on here as they come in and we'll definitely be posting the news when baby arrives, along with pictures. For anyone interested, we're delivering at Providence in Waco. We won't be having any visitors during the inducing part or labor & delivery. So we'll see everyone after the baby has arrived, if you wish to come up there!
